Overview

"This volume interrogates the sterotypes ascribed to millennial students in relation to those students' diverse characteristics, primarily their race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. In revealing how assumptions about millennials may or may not apply across different groups, contributors challenge the view of millennial students as a monolithic group while confirming aspects of millennial identity. The book makes important advances toward complicating assumptions about today's traditionally-aged college students without eschewing a level of generalization necessary to understanding particular groups and subgroups."?Diversity and Democracy

"A bountiful resource for the advisor who wants to learn more about millennials as a generational whole and gain deeper insight in to the diverse cultural groups that compromise this generation."?NACADA Journal

This book is for administrators and faculty members who seek greater depth and understanding of the issues associated with diverse Millennial college student populations. It informs readers about the ways in which this cohort differs from their majority counterparts to open a dialogue about how faculty members and administrators can meet their needs effectively both inside and outside the classroom. It will also be of value to student affairs personnel, students enrolled in graduate level courses in higher education and other social science courses that explore issues of college student development and diversity, particularly students planning to work with diverse Millennial college students in both clinical or practical work settings.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The great value of this volume is that it provides a broad overview of millennial college students from a range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. It provides useful commentary and analysis on what is a conceptually complex area - student diversity. This volume is a very welcome addition to the field. It broadens the discussion on student diversity at the college level and bridges both sides of the divide between theoretical discussion and practical direction setting."

"This book provides an excellent overview of the diversity of experiences that make up the Millennial cohort, being a valuable contribution to the research both on Millennials and diverse populations. Far from being a monolithic group, the book both challenges and complicates the way Millennials are portrayed in the media and public understanding. Since all of the subgroups covered in the book have tremendous within-group diversity, having two chapters on each sub-group allows for an additional array of perspectives and approaches to understanding Millennial students. The authors overall offer fresh and intriguing viewpoints that make a valuable contribution to our understanding of this complex cohort of students."

"As students of the so-called "Millennial" generation make their way into higher education, it's clear to educators that one blanket term does not fit all. In the 15 chapters of this text, 33 American academics, researchers, and administrators explore the diversity of "Millennial" students in terms of racial and ethnic identity, as well as cultural, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status differences. The text opens with a discussion about testing assumptions about generational cohorts. Subsequent chapters focus on African American, Asian American, Latina/o, Native American, LGBTQ, and bi- and multiracial students; the college-to-workforce transition of students of color; and curriculum design considerations to address student diversity. The material is intended for faculty, administrators, and student affairs personnel."

"This edited bolume interrogates the sterotypes ascribed to millennial students in relation to those students' diverse characteristics, primarily their race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. In revealing how assumptions about millennials may or may not apply across different groups, contributors challenge the view of millennial students as a monolithic group while confirming aspects of millennial identity. The book makes important advances toward complicating assumptions about today's traditionally-aged college students without eschewing a level of generalization necessary to understanding particular groups and subgroups."

"A bountiful resource for the advisor who wants to learn more about millennials as a generational whole and gain deeper insight in to the diverse cultural groups that compromise this generation."

"Writings on the concerns and experiences of "millennial" students of varied minority racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as non-majority sexual orientations."
